Maintenance is one of your most CONTROLLABLE costs!

Due to the economic downturn, all companies are opting for cost reduction measures. It has been estimated that of the over 1.2 trillion dollars per year spent on maintenance, more than 40% - 480 billion dollars – is waster! It is wasted due to poor management of resources, poor measurement and control of labor, material and capital.

For maintenance to make its proper contribution to profits, productivity, and quality, it must be recognized as an integral component of the overall plan by which the plant provides the product to the customer at the quality they want at the price they are willing to pay. To accomplish the maintenance mission in a world class organization requires more than maintenance just ‘doing its job’or ‘getting its act together’. It requires the cooperation of and the association with virtually all other departments within the plant – but especially production, procurement, engineering, accounting, and human resources.

Getting “beyond the boundaries” is what proves so difficult. The challenge is to get other departments to adjust, to work out new arrangements that shift territories and responsibilities, to get departments or groups to recognize common goals or even accept each other’s ideas. That takes time…and commitment.

We must fix the “process”- not just the “problems”!

Course Facilitator Profile

The course facilitator’s 30 years in maintenance spans from mechanical engineering, strategic asset management to rotating equipment. He was previously a mechanical engineer with the State Energy Commission of Western Australia, where he conducted equipment failure investigations and constructed improvement plans. He was then the maintenance manager for the Swan Brewery, responsible for overall plant reliability and project engineering.

He then spent over 10 years as maintenance manager and head of engineering services for Coogee Chemicals. In this role, he successfully introduced condition monitoring and maintenance strategies that reduced production down time and maintenance costs. An achievement was reducing bearing failures from 3 a month to 3 a year

As a maintenance manager, he also successfully initiated and trained other reliability centered techniques focused towards rotating equipment, including vibration analysis, particle analysis, thermography, equipment criticality analysis, root cause analysis reviews.

As a current maintenance and reliability consultant, he continues to assist organisations such as BHP Biliton, Smorgon Steel and the Water Authority in improving equipment reliability. He is also reputed publisher of numerous online technical white papers and training materials that are widely sought after by maintenance professionals.

He was the ex Chairman of the WA Chapter of (MESA) the Maintenance Engineering Society of Australia and a confident and exciting presenter at Australian and international conferences and workshops.

He will help you elevate your current knowledge and skills and improve your performance within your work environment and organisation

Why You Should Attend
Detailed and comprehensive maintenance planning and scheduling is important for successful maintenance work execution. But to create continually improving plant and equipment reliability world class maintenance planningn and scheduling incorporates fundamental Lean and work quality management principles that drive work efficiency and make effective use of technician skills.

This training course provides all the advance information, knowledge and mtehods that maintenance planners can add into their current work practices and planning process so they perform well above the average and deliver higher operating plant reliability through their efforts.

After the workshop, you should be able to:
- DISCOVER the latest Physics of Failure approach for equipment reliability improvement.
- MITIGATE gaps and shortcomings in your maintenance planning and scheduling processes.
- UNDERSTAND the real impact of human error in maintenance work processes and protect against it.
- IDENTIFY the vital historical data to collect in your CMMS so you build the right foundations for future maintenance cost reductions.
- DETERMINE the best performing process operations are doing with their maintenance planning and scheduling systems.
- MASTER the maintenance planning and scheduling methods and tools that hugely improve tasks productivity and work accuracy.
LEARN to get production plant back into operation faster and running efficiently.
- IMPROVISE with the best practices and methods, the specific requirements and the systems that need to be in place (and in use) to get the most from maintenance planning and scheduling.
